I need to use a vpn to log into my work computer from home. I just downloaded netspark but it is blocking my work vpn. I googled it and apparently Netspark doesn’t allow using VPNs. Can anyone recommend a good internet filter for desktops that allows VPNs?
I use OpenDNS and it allows VPN (Baruch Hashem, otherwise I would have been out of work for the last six months!). You may be able to get an exception if you call the company. Also, some filters allow a lot of customization.
Netspark doesn’t work with a vpn because it in itself is a VPN that routes your internet traffic through its own network. Opendns might not be the best option because if you are even a little bit tech savvy, you can probably figure out how to take it off. Maybe try gentech?
My understanding is if you are using your company’s vpn for your browser than your opendns won’t be filtering. (For your kids you should probably try to block vpn’s with opendns) It is possible for your work vpn to have opendns built in.
If you are an employer who doesnt want employees on youtube all day than wireguard is a good vpn option.
Edited – Sorry, no links
If you can’t remove your filter on your own (if you try), it’s malware. You can beat any filter anyway by simply using a different device or a different network, and with devices starting at about $20 and free public wifi available in many places, you have to take responsibility for what you do with a computer yourself.
